Mushishi: Zoku-Shō 15-Second Commercial Reveals Premiere Date
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the Mushishi anime began streaming a commercial this Saturday for the upcoming second season, Mushishi: Zoku-Shō (Mushishi: The Sequel Chapter). The series will begin on Friday, April 4 at 12:00 a.m.
The new season will reunite most of the staff from the first season, led by director and series script supervisor Hiroshi Nagahama. Cast members Yuto Nakano and Mika Doi are also reprising their roles as Ginko and the narrating voice.
Urushibara's original manga began in 1995, and finished in Afternoon in 2008. Del Rey published the the manga, and Funimation released Hiroshi Nagahama and Artland's first anime adaptation and Katsuhiro Otomo's live-action film version in North America.
Urushibara's recent two-chapter special manga spinoff of Mushishi inspired the January television special. Kodansha published the manga in the January and February issues of Afternoon magazine, which shipped on November 25 and December 25, respectively. The anime special aired on January 4 at 11:30 p.m. on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, and BS11, and Crunchyroll streamed it into several countries.
